Candlelight vigil for Lancaster City fire victims

Relatives, friends and neighbors gather in front of the rowhome in the 200 block of East Madison street where a 38-year-old city woman and her 6-year-old niece died in an early morning fire.  About 50 people gathered at around 7 o’clock Monday evening for the emotional candlelight vigil in front of the now boarded up home .

Three firefighters were injured fighting the fire.  Andre Kelly is in critical but stable condition at Crozer-Chester Medical Center.  The other two firefighters, Tom Benders and Craig Robertson were treated for minor injuries.

    Maybe candle vigils do nothing for you, but for families that are grieving, it is a way of showing respect for loved ones. How you could be so insensitive to post your comment is beyond me. I pray that you never lose a loved one by an accident.
